Who needs to look good on paper when you can look this good in it? In a gorgeous editorial called “Limited Paper”, photographer Iban Montero showcases the unlikely elegance that an office supply can exude when crafted into dresses worthy of Monsieur Christian Dior himself.
Women may dominate most areas of the fashion industry — look around any fashion magazine, PR agency, or design studio and that much becomes clear — but the big names in photography are still very much male. Mario (x2), Terry, Peter, Patrick, Steven (x2) …the list goes on. On International Women’s Day, we want to celebrate the ladies behind the lens who create some of the most stunning, memorable, and personal images in the field today. From power players like Annie Leibovitz to more under-the-radar names like Collier Schorr and Lina Scheynius, here are some of our favorite females in the biz.
So Santa has come and gone and all of the presents are unwrapped…now what?

It’s kind of like an advent calendar, but you can open them up all at once!
Photographer Terry Richardson is one of fashion’s most provocative players and it’s no wonder why the constant controversies surrounding him make the 44-year-old no stranger to our newsfeed.

Last night, CEO of Club Monaco, John Mehas, hosted an event honoring legendary photographer Bert Stern. Bert Stern is best known for his famed photographs of Marilyn Monroe titled The Last Sitting, which included 2,500 photographs taken for Vogue which were shot over a three day period only six weeks prior to the starlet’s death.
Famed fashion photographer, Irving Penn, died today at the age of 92 at his home in Manhattan. A much valued contributing photographer at Vogue, Penn quickly became a tastemaker. His ability to portray fashion with clarity landed 150 of his photographs on the fashion bible’s cover and a lengthy, 40 year stay at the publication.
